Member Testimonials

Before joining NOFFCU, we had several accounts at several banks. NOFFCU allowed us to move all of our accounts to one place. We also have purchased 2 vehicles through the Credit Union. Meka T. really went above and beyond to assure that we got the best rates. She introduced us to the Kasasa Auto Loan and we financed our latest vehicle with it. Meka also offered suggestions to make sure we were getting quality vehicles. We are truly happy with OUR NOFFCU!!

I recently had an experience with Hewlett Packard charging my account for services that were not rendered. HP basically told me that I was out of luck (and out of almost $60. which had been charged on my NOFFCU credit card). I called NOFFCU and was connected with Sheila Johnson. Sheila was very courteous and went above and beyond to try to help me with this problem. Although I was unable to dispute these charges, Sheila reviewed all of the documents and offered me some alternatives. I appreciate her efforts and wanted to thank her, as well as commend her service to whomever she works for and with.

I was going through a rough time and was unsure of how I would be able to afford Christmas for my 3 children. Much less the regular bills I had coming in. I contacted the Metairie office on Napoleon Avenue. The ladies there are so friendly and helped me so much. They truly work with you to fit your needs and make it a fast process so you are not there for a long time. I was able to go in on my lunch break and all my documents were ready for me. It was such an easy and smooth process. I will definitely be keeping them in mind for future financial needs. I love this credit union. I was able to get over the little 'bump in the road' I had with ease, and I am truly grateful.

This credit union has by far been the best one I have had. I've had several in my life time, but this one works with you and helps you. They find ways to help your credit and give you loans when other places will not. I love that they value their customers before anything. I strongly recommend them to anyone.

- Jeffery S.

I was with another bank and tried for 2 years to get them to help me with my credit. I wasn't in the office very long at New Orleans Firemen’s Credit Union and the people were so nice and friendly and opened me an account and helped me start to build my credit. I thought it was pretty awesome because I was beginning to think there was no hope.

- Melody M.

I will not bank with anyone else. I love my NOFFCU. They are very helpful. I refinanced my house and it went so smoothly and fast. You are always waiting for the bottom to fall out, but no. I have all my accounts link and can go on line and pay everything at one time. Thank you for staying up with technology.

- Camille T.

I love NOFFCU! I couldn't get a loan from a bank because I filed bankruptcy 6 years ago, and NOFFCU approved me with no problems. I have a cheap note and low interest rate. Thanks for given me and my Credit another shot!
